Eliel Saarinen Dominick Haff Sterling Silver Art Deco Flatware Set 1930

In 1927, Finnish-born Eliel Saarinen was one of nine architects invited by the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York to design thirteen room settings for The Architect and the Industrial Arts, its eleventh exhibition of contemporary American design. The organizers requested that all furnishings and accessories for a room be included, and they stipulated that no object to be displayed could already be in production. For the exhibit, Eliel Saarinen created a dining room outfitted with four new patterns of flatware that were displayed on the dining room table, including 'Contempora', officially offered to and designed for Dominick & Haff in 1929.

A fine circa 1930 sterling silver flatware set by Eliel Saarinen for Dominick & Haff of New York, consisting of twelve eleven-piece place settings as listed below.
